Anker, Panasonic Among First Companies to Introduce Google Home-Compatible Smart Speakers

Google Assistant coming to more speakers and home appliances from LG

At the time of the announcement, Google announced the availability of Assistant on the following three speakers - IP67 water resistant Mobvoi TicHome Mini for $100, Anker's yet-to-be-launched ZoloMojo and the Panasonic GA10. Like with the Google Home, you can ask these smart speakers questions like "Ok Google, how far away is the moon?" or "Ok Google, tell me about my day".

Using Google Home, or any Android phone or iPhone with Google Assistant installed, users can check the status of any LG smart home device, from washing machine to fridge. As of Friday 25 August, Apple users in the UK, Germany and France can install Google's answer to Siri for free.

Google's Home speaker is the flagship device for Google Assistant today. Instead, Google Assistant is coming to third party products to help quickly expand its reach and allow it to take shape in many form factors.

At IFA in Berlin this week, Google is revealing which hardware partners are adopting Google Assistant for their smart speakers. Once it hits the market, the Mini will be available in a wide range of colors, including black, white, red, and green. Google has said they'll continue to update the page in the source link below as more products with Assistant support are announced, so keep an eye on their blog post as IFA continues for more information. This means you'll be able to talk to things like your Google Assistant powered washers, dryers, vacuums - or better yet, your fridge. And because the Assistant on Google Home can distinguish one voice from another, the entire family can get in on the action. At CES earlier this year, Amazon Alexa was in so many connected devices that it truly stole the show and many are hoping Google's solution will have similar results. With them, you can set the sprinkler, turn on the slow cooker or dim the lights, because the future is now.
